Homeopathy - Best treatment for asthma in children
Asthma disease can be very tough for children. They have a hard time keeping pace with their friends while playing. They tend to get out of breath after doing the simplest of tasks. And it can be pretty overwhelming when kids are exposed to certain triggers.
What happens during an asthma attack?
Asthma is a respiratory condition that makes it harder for the air to move in and out of your lungs. Normally, the airways are open and clean. There’s no swelling, no restriction for air to move in and out. As the child comes close to a trigger and starts coughing, mucus starts building up in the lung walls. This makes breathing very difficult as he/she gasps for air, resulting in an asthma attack.
Triggers and Symptoms
Some triggers that can cause an asthma attack are pollen, changes in the weather, animal dander, respiratory infections such as viral or bacterial infections, exercise, perfumes, and any smoking near the child. Asthma patients should avoid these triggers whenever they can.
Asthma symptoms include coughing, difficulty breathing, wheezing, chest pressure, anxiety, flare, fast heart rate, early awakening, or throat irritation.
There are different options used in asthma treatment.
- Inhaled steroids contain corticosteroids, which help in fighting inflammation in the airways. They are used as maintenance medications and must be used regularly to be effective. Some side-effects include dryness, dizziness, allergy symptoms, coughs, and headaches.
- Bronchodilators are your rescue medications. They relax the muscles in the lungs which allow the airways to widen and make it easier to breathe. Some side-effects of bronchodilators are tachycardia, hyperactivity, and jitteriness.
- Systemic steroids are anti-inflammatory medicines that reduce inflammation in the whole body. These medications can be oral or can be given by vein. Some of the side-effects of this medication are headaches or an upset stomach.
What you need is an approach that is not only effective but also presents no side-effects at all i.e. homeopathy!
Asthma treatment in homeopathy
Asthma treatment in homeopathy is a very holistic and individualistic approach. Asthma can be triggered by various factors as we have just seen. What may trigger an asthma attack in a particular individual may not do the same in another individual.
Asthma is also closely connected with stress, anxiety, and other psychological conditions. Not to mention the fact that it can exist or be associated with other respiratory conditions such as bronchitis and allergic rhinitis. These medical and psychological factors may affect an individual’s asthma differently.
At Dr Batra’s™, all of that is closely evaluated for each child separately. After the evaluation is done, the homeopathic doctor prescribes a customized medication for the kid. There are no generic medicines in homeopathy. homeopathic medicine for asthma can be taken for as long as required without any addiction issues.
Homeopathic treatment can work in tandem with any of the above-mentioned medications if you are skeptical about leaving them. It does not interfere with the pharmacodynamics of conventional medicines in any way, which is great.
